Pollution caused by tyre wear and brake dust is to be tackled by a new Government Clean Air Strategy.

With plans already in place to tackle air pollution from exhaust emissions, the Government’s next focus will be particulate matter with a diameter of less than 2.5 micrometres (PM2.5) emitted by tyres and brakes as they wear.
